I am very sorry for your loss. I just met Lynn a few weeks ago while I was out at Fox Products speaking with the employees. It didn't take long to see that Lynn was a dedicated, hardworking person who loved his job, and that he was very well liked and respected by his coworkers.
Dear Pam and Family Sorry to hear of Lynn's passing. You guys were such good neighbors to Donna. He was a great person. Glad I was able to be around him. Rest in Peace Lynn!!!! You will be missed!!! Rick and Debra Dennison
Mike & Jan,
Sincere sympathy to you and the LaRue Family on the loss of your brother. Sending love and prayers during this sad time.
Well, I remember Lynn from the Ridgewood, Newport neighborhood in the late 60's. He was quite a flash on his bike riding around the neighborhood. The baby brother of all the boys. Butch, Steve, Norm, Mike and Pam, I am so sorry to hear of Lynn's passing. He lives on in your hearts and memories. Alice (Huffman) Ruper
Verne, My heart goes out to you and your family on the passing of your brother. My deepest condolences, Marsha Kiester

So sorry to hear of Lynn's passing. I went to school with Steve & Vern. Prayers of comfort for all of the family & friends.
Sorry for your loss I'm a classmate of Janet will keep family in prayer
So very sorry to hear of Lynn's passing . I always enjoyed talking with him while still at Fox and after I retured when seeing each other usually at the grocery. Sincere sympathy Pam and Holly as well as rest of family. Thoughts and prayers.
I met Lynn 5 years ago when I became hired in at Fox Products. He was very kind and always going above and beyond what was required of him.
Once he was employed at Fox north, I didn't get to visit with him much. I did get to visit with him a few weeks ago at our company fall dinner. We chatted about life and family. He had a big smile on his face when he spoke of his grandchildren. He was a special person, and my heart is with all of you as you mourn his loss!
May each of you find courage to face tomorrow as you rest in the knowledge that we truly care about each of your needs and that we will walk beside you in your journey of grief.
